Thumbs up!!!
19 February 2006 | by info-7255See all my reviews

Thumbs up!!! Simply a good movie, not just a good short.

The director Sage Stallone did an outstanding job, building fragile plot of emotions and suspense, drama and humor, in a tale of a man who, once famous, tasted the bitter truth about unsteadiness of human fascination and memory.

With a story of this kind, this could easily become a very long 30 minutes for the audience. It definitely is not the case. The acting of Clu Gulager is superb, vivid and deeply moving. Up to the point, that I felt puzzled, knowing that it wasn't a documentary. This picture is a potential winner of indie film festivals and I can only hope that the director will present us with a feature very soon.
